Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative

Yamaha Dealers and Customers "Guaranteeing Responsible Access to our Nation's Trails"

Through the Outdoor Access Initiative, Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. provides GRANT fundings to deserving organizations to help further the program’s goal of Guaranteeing Responsible Access to our Nation's Trails. Yamaha encourages clubs, associations and agencies to submit detailed applications for their specific needs.

Each quarter, Yamaha will accept applications from organizations such as non-profit or tax exempt OHV riding groups (clubs & associations), public riding areas (local, state and federal), outdoor enthusiast associations and land conservation organizations with an interest in protecting, improving, expanding and/or maintaining  access for safe, responsible and sustainable use by motorized off-road vehicles. A committee then reviews each application and awards GRANTs to deserving projects.

Examples of how Outdoor Access Initiative GRANT funds may be used:
• Trail development, restoration and maintenance
• Trail signage and map production
• Staging area construction, renovation, and maintenance
• Safety and education

For more information, please see the Outdoor Access Initiative Guidelines.
